    Usually a solid Red Light means overheating. A flashing Red Light could be a bad Eeprom. If you can't repair it yourself then having it repaired is an option but probably somewhat costly. You could sell it on Ebay or How much do you want for it?

    whatever is wrong with it, sell it on ebay, trust me, youll get at least $50
    parts are selling well.
    and the good thing about xbox, is the parts that work are all reusable.
    you could consider selling the parts seperate, but on ebay, that means more in seller fees etc (ebay are related to bill gates)

    A good tip too is , if you mod an xbox, increase the fan speed at the back, this is good for 1/ help cooling (duh) and 2/ you can hear it easier.
    its easy to increase fan speed, if yo udont wanna do it the hardware way, you can do it via a bios config (use evtools etc) I increase fan speed by 40% when I do an xbox with a 160gb drive,(7,200 rpm) and it does the job just fine:)


    Twinski, youre da man:))))))

    i am considering getting it repaired, but can i ask you lot if metal gear twin snakes was ever released on xbox, i know it came out for gamecube..

    i dont have the cables or leads to check out the xbox myself, all i know is what ive been told, switched on, flashing red light, error on screen..?
    xbox is not modded
    my mates pretty sure it overheated, could that damage alot of internal parts..
